Agilent Technologies will sell its X-ray diffraction business to Rigaku, an instrumentation company based in Tokyo. Agilent acquired the business with its $1.5 billion purchase of Varian in 2010. The X-ray diffraction unit makes single-crystal X-ray instruments for chemical analysis and will complement Rigaku’s protein crystallography business. Last year, Agilent exited the former Varian NMR business.
